Visit to the Salmon River Fish Hatchery

We recently visited the Oregon State Fish Hatchery in Otis, Oregon. This hatchers has a salmon run. It was fascinating watching these Coco Salmon jump. I’ve seen fish jump but not with such instinctual dedication.

2 jumpers

There were many salmon in the water at the bottom of this four foot high barrier. It seemed impossible that they were getting over but some must have as there fish on the other side.

This one jumped so high part of it went out of the frame of my camera.
